Trademark Tabs Troy For Next Total War Saga Title

A U.K. trademark by Total War developer Creative Assembly indicates that Troy is an upcoming location for the Saga offshoot of the strategy series.

The listing, found by Reddit user zhxws simply lists a game called Total War Saga: Troy. The filing was made on July 23, 2019, but neither the developer nor publisher/owner Sega has made an official announcement for the game.

The Saga imprint of Total War is about smaller conflicts, with Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia releasing last year.

New Guilty Gear Aims To Be A 'Brand New Experience' For Fighting Games

New Guilty Gear Aims To Be A 'Brand New Experience' For Fighting Games

At Evo 2019, acclaimed fighting game developer Arc System Works released a trailer for a new installment in its long running Guilty Gear franchise. In a recent statement from the series general director Daisuke Ishiwatari, the newly-announced title was stated to be neither an "'evolution nor returning to the roots'" for the franchise. 

"What we are pursuing is a brand new experience for Guilty Gear," the statement read. "To achieve that goal, we've disassembled the current franchise into fragments and sifted out the pieces that make it unique and charismatic, using those pieces to have a complete reconstruction of the franchise. What we're undertaking is a full-frontal confrontation with the essence of the Fighting Game genre, a tremendous challenge for Guilty Gear."

With little more than a trailer to go on, it's hard to guess what this confrontation with the fighting game genre will look like. Though the game does not have a release date outside of a 2020 window, the official Arc System Works website says that it will be playable at Arcrevo America on November 16, and hopefully we will have a further understanding what this reconstruction will look like then. You can read the statement in full below.

Bungie Dates Destiny 2 Cross Save & Account-Link Features

Bungie is moving from Activision Blizzard's Battle.Net launcher over to Steam on October 1 (a delay from the original September 17 date), but before then players can link their PC accounts and saves.

On August 20 you can link your PC player accounts to start transitioning your Guardians and purchases, and the next day on August 21 Cross Save launches. Cross Save enables players to select an active group of characters and play them on any connected accounts across different platforms.

Bungie is coordinating this migration process with not only the move from Battle.Net to Steam, but also with the Shadowkeep and New Light additions. Their release dates were recently moved from September 17 to October 1

Hello Games Is Interested In No Man's Sky On Switch

On August 14th Hello Games is launching No Man's Sky Beyond, a large free update that will add full VR support, online multiplayer for 16-32 players (platform dependent), and a batch of other frequently requested features like animal riding. The small team is continuing to work on and optimize No Man's Sky technology (you can read more about that in our GDC interview) and, in a recent interview with Sean Murray, we asked whether we'd ever see the expansive sci-fi game ported to the Nintendo Switch.

"It's super interesting," says Murray. "I love the Switch. We're obviously very focused on what we're doing right now, but we have done a lot of work for PSVR to optimize the game. So I'd be interested to see what's possible. But at the moment, we're just very focused on what we're doing right now."

No Man's Sky Beyond releases on August 14th as a free update to the existing game, with a new PlayStation 4 retail disc launching in September as well. You can read our full preview of the game and more from our interview with Sean Murray by clicking here. To learn more about why we were so impressed by playing No Man's Sky in VR, check out our video impressions below.

Children Of Morta Launches In Mid-October

Children of Morta, the roguelike RPG that was originally supposed to release in 2018, finally has a much firmer release date. Fans have been looking forward to the dark, story-driven roguelike that puts you in the role of a mother looking for a sacrificed child, but the release date has been floating for most of the year. The game will find its footing on multiple consoles very soon on October 15.

You can check out the release date trailer below.

The game releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on October 15. You can read our most recent impressions here.

Final Game List For TurboGrafx-16 Miniconsole Revealed

Final Game List For TurboGrafx-16 Miniconsole Revealed

It hasn't been talked about much, but Konami is prepping their own miniconsole for release later next year. Like the NES, SNES, and Genesis Classic, the Turbo-Grafx 16 trailer includes a collection of games that were released on the system and were emulated by ace retro emulation studio M2. 

You can check out the final trailer below.

As a very arcade-heavy focus, the console is pretty loaded with shooters and side-scrolling brawlers, but there's definitely an audience for that time and place. I'm really jazzed about Splatterhouse, though. The TG-16 version is probably my favorite one, though I am not sure it gets me over the finish line to get this console just for that. There's definitely a lot to play on the console, though.

SteamWorld Quest Gets A 2.0 Update With Major Changes

SteamWorld Quest Gets A 2.0 Update With Major Changes

SteamWorld Quest is likely the most divisive of the SteamWorld games, which reinvents itself with every different entry in the series, but the people it spoke to really seemed to dig it. Those that finished the game and find themselves wanting more will now get the chance with a new update, which basically adds a remixed mode to the New Game Plus option after you have beaten the game.

You can see the developers from Image & Form talk about it in their new developer diary here.

The new update adds a Legend Remix difficulty, which they themselves describe as "super hard," and remixes the gameplay to add some twists instead of just a regular old New Game Plus mode. The update will also add concept art, official "fan" art from the team, a jukebox, HD rumble for Switch, and more. There's not a lot of details yet, but people who thought Legend difficulty was too easy now have something else to sink their teeth into.

The final trailer for the last of the four new Vault Hunters has arrived, and FL4K the Beastmaster and his three loyal and fearsome pets are ready to kill. Meet the pack in the newest character trailer.  

FL4K has three pets of different varieties, each with its own abilities. First is a Spiderant in the Hunter skill tree with a drill for a leg and a penchant for killing. The Jabber, of the Stalker skill tree, is eager to please. The Skag, in the Master skill tree, is a deadly beast who just wants to have fun. On top of these three pets, FL4K can also summon Rakks to fly into battle after expanding the Hunter tree. 

FL4K, a marksman, is an emergent A.I. on a never-ending hunt. What exactly is he hunting for? You'll have to wait for Borderlands 3 to find out. Borderlands 3 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13. For the other hunter trailers follow the links for Zane, Amara, and Moze.
